A special recipe for those who serve our country.
Here’s what you’ll need: Makes about 3 dozen cookies
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar, light or dark
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 sticks of butter, melted
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cranberries
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup chocolate chips, bittersweet or milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and oatmeal in a medium bowl. Beat eggs, salt and vanilla in a small bowl. Mix Pumpkin, butter, oil and sugars in a large bowl. Stir in egg mixture until smooth. Stir in flour mixture and combine. Add the cranberries, pecans and chocolate mixing gently to incorporate throughout the cookie dough.
Drop a teaspoonful onto a parchment-lined or greased floured cookie sheet. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes, or until golden browned around the edges. Let cool for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
These are crunchy on the edges and chewy in the middle. I plan on donating batches of cookies to our service people.
